Pip White is Google’s UK and Ireland cloud queen

Google Cloud has appointed Pip White as the company’s Managing Director of UK and Ireland.

White will join Google Cloud in September this year and will lead the UK and Ireland business and the company’s development of its “go-to-market” sales operations across the region. She will spearhead and scale Google Cloud’s sales strategy across the UK and Ireland, a market which has seen a number of recent high-profile customer wins such as Lloyds Banking Group, Vodafone and The Football Association.

White  has about two decades of sales leadership experience, driving enterprise cloud solution sales strategies, strategic alliances, inside sales, and technical team management.

Joining Google Cloud most recently from Salesforce and prior to that HP, White has led 400+ people sales organisations within the UK and Ireland, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa.

White’s 13 years with HP saw her hold various positions across sales, new business and marketing within multiple market segments and industries including enterprise, SMB, public sector, financial services and retail.

Her  appointment follows a number of recent Google Cloud hires in the EMEA region including Sanj Bhayro as new Chief Operating Officer and Chris Ciauri as President, and reflects the company’s plans to scale its EMEA sales teams to support its industry-specific enterprise customer focus.
